Thumbs up New LG Optimus Elite Owner

I wanted to upgrade my Optimus V and didn't think there was going to be a choice on the Grandfathered plan, however news just hit regarding the ability to get the Elite on the grandfathered Virgin Mobile plan....so I scooted over to BB and grabbed one for $129.99 ($149.99 at Wally World) and just put it on my VM grandfathered plan successfully.

Haven't made a call, txt, or anything yet....just charging the battery for now, but I did activate it.

Now I need ROOT!!!

So far, so good...seems like a worthwhile upgrade from the V if the GPS and radio are equal.

ps: I noticed in the beginning of the Elite's description below it mentions a 3.2" screen, and later acknowledges it is 3.5". The Godz might wish to correct the first part that says 3.2"

The VM bill page shows what the next bill will be, and it is still $25. Further, others are also reporting their bills staying at $25.

I have an operator number for the person I talked to who also annotated my account regarding our conversation and agreement to leave me at $25.

There was even a person who assume he had to change to the $35 plan, so he first changed his plan, then swapped his phone. When he heard of others staying on their $25 plan with the Elite, he called in and had his changed from $35 back to $25.

Have had the phone for a day now, haven't talked on it yet, so I can't comment on the voice quality or the cell radio, but I can say that the GPS is better than the OV's GPS and almost as good as my Galaxy S II GPS.

I am testing the OV, the Elite, and the GS2 side by side right now. I had a Triumph before returning it after a few dismal days. In the same location as the three being tested below, the Triumph got NO satellites. I had to leave the house to get a satellite. For comparison, check out these three:

OV has 5 satellites in view, 5 in us, accuracy is just over 100, but drops down to the 30s and 40s as the distance "floats", hovers between 0 and 1 lock.

The Elite see 18 satellites, 5 to 7 in use, typically 40' accuracy, and one locked.

The Galaxy S II has the same 18 in view, 6-7 in use, accuracy hovering over 100, dropping under 100' some times, 0-1 locks.

After watching all three screens for awhile, and watching the satellites, accuracy, and locks jumping around, I declare the Elite the winner, beating the much more expensive GSII.

If left running for awhile, so more information could be collected, the numbers improved a bit.

I was VERY impressed with how quickly the Elite made a GPS connection without being able to "learn" my location. When I very first turned it on and launched the first GPS-centric application it quickly for the satellites and gave me proper location information.

I am guessing an outside or near south window location would give all three phones a better signal.

I have a quick question. How much user accessible storage is available on your Elite? I have to keep a watch on my OV all the time to make sure I don't have too many apps. I'm sure it has more than the OV's 120whatever MB, but exactly how much does it offer?

The best place for comparing phones is phonescoop. Here is their comparison of the two phones:

Phonescoop Optimus V vs. Elite


They show 140MB for the OV and 1GB for the Elite. I had a memory problem until I went to an alternative ROM which I would highly suggest for the OV, but I would give an even higher recommendation to go to the Elite.

My OV shows 72MB used total Internal Storage, 107MB free. Under "downloaded applications" there are 86 listed programs. That is a lot of programs and have only used half of my internal memory. I have an SD card on the OV which is part of why I get so many programs on it while still leaving some space.

So far I only have 101 (downloaded) programs on the Elite. It shows 560MB used 330MB free. I haven't even put a SD card in it yet, so all of those programs are currently in the built-in memory.

Could be a rouge app trying to "call home" to much or causing a "wake lock".
Turn off Auto Sync, Wifi, Mobile Data, GPS, and the Bluetooth you mentioned. Get rid of Juice defender (it will not let you turn on Mobile data and GPS at the same time, a lot), it actually takes up space and use's up more juice than if you just did things yourself. You can do everything it does by downloading a widget app that will allow you to put widgets on any screen to control all the items above.

Go to settings/applications/running apps. Kill all the apps that are running. Monitor the ones that pop right back up in the running apps list. Go to settings/about phone/battery usage. Look and see what app/apps is using up your battery.

One at a time delete the one's that show up in the battery usage. After downloading one wait at least a day to see if you battery has improved. If not re-install and delete another.

Everything he said.... I have a program called PlaceMe that is always checking where I am...obviously that can burn up some battery by using the GPS.

Despite PlaceMe being my biggest power user (38%) as well as cell standby, wifi, etc. mine has been on battery for 19+ hours and I am at 62%. I am not a power user, i.e. haven't talked on it in that 19 hours, only a text or two, but I did some GPS testing and other program installation stuff in that time.

Just saw the article Levi did about battery usage and how you shouldn't leave something always plugged in, and should try as well as you can to keep the battery between 20 and 80% as going above or below that shortens the battery life.

I think given the cost of batteries, you it might be cheaper to buy a battery once a year than worry about it. I just replaced the original battery in my OV after 15 months of being constantly on charge other than my brief jaunts away from home.

BTW, the Elite NFC antenna is in the back lid, not in the battery like my Samsung. Without the NFC antenna in the battery, the battery cost should be a bit cheaper than other NFC phones.

Install an app called "Periodic Auto Sync" set it to every 4 hours for 1 min.
Install the widget app. There a plenty to choose from, pick the free one that gives you the most widget's. Install the ones mentioned ^ a brightness control widget that will allow you to pick 6-5 different levels, a USB Widget, a lock screen widget, airplane mode, silent/vibrate/volume on, and screen orientation (for when you need to move around but you don't want your screen to).

I just noticed your comment about brightness turned down. If your phone is sitting around with the display on, even at a low level, all the time, that is where your juice is going. I don't leave my screen on unless I am testing or have a need to see it contstantly, and if I need to see it constantly, I leave it on a charger.

Did you ever check to see what your phone was saying it was using the battery for most. Then there is no more guessing.

I am now at 35 hours on my first battery charge from when I got the phone 2 days ago. Still at 42% battery with 39% of my battery used for PlaceMe. If I wasn't running that app I would have 60-70% of my battery left.

It doesn't look like you have a rouge app. Double check everything mentioned ^ above.
The other thing about your battery drain: When you first get the phone you have the screen on going everywhere and downloading all sorts of apps. This takes power.
Once you have everything downloaded and where you want it, you wont be having near the battery drain because you wont be needing to have the screen on and downloading stuff (the biggest battery drains) all the time.

Do you have notifications turned on for apps like Facebook, Amazon App Store and such? Those two used to run my V into the ground before I turned off notifications. As for the Elite I ran it heavily for about six hours yesterday loading apps and trying out car dock apps and even with all that and bluetooth turned on I was only down to about 60% left by the evening. The only battery saving app I use is Y5 to automatically switch over to wi-fi at home.

This is a paid service that you can get through Virgin Mobile. You have to purchase the MiFi and then get the extra monthly plan with it.

The second gray tab has the plan details and pricing.

It is available as an addon for some hand held devices now for an additional $15 a month. The Evo will have it, unsure about the elite.

Noticed the Link2SD link in your reply. It seems a way is needed to put applications on the SD once we fill the internal memory. Supposedly only music and video goes to the SD and everything else stays local.

If ya saw my post, You cannot save apps to your SD card with the Optimus Elite!

the elite is setup like most and my tablet, ive yet to find a program that can push apps to the external SD, they only let you chose the built in SD.

so far all I have been able to do is get titaniumbackup pro to put the backup files on the external SD and ******** to save files there, but haven't been able to push apps there.

I have a Titanium Pro backup on the SD on my Optimus V, but without TP on the Elite, I don't know how to do a restore. I don't know where the files were copied from...that is half the problem, it isn't just having the files, but not knowing where to put them on the Elite. I wrote the developer twice and never heard back. Would be nice for that info to be in the FAQ or ?

Regarding the info at the link you provided, I have WiFi Explorer Pro your link references, I don't get how that helps me figure out where they should go?

I have already tried to explore the phone and I only find the SD copy of the files, not the ones on the phone it backed up..

Thanks

Does this phone have a plastic or glass screen? Sounds like a good device and I'm thinking of getting one, but would like to know ahead of time about the screen's durability.

Probably plastic, doubt it is Gorilla Glass. A screen protector will take care of that, or at this price point, it is easier to just be kind to your phone and skip the screen protector. I didn't use one on my OV and didn't put one on my Galaxy either. None of my tablets have screen protectors either.

If you are someone who is rough with your phone, get a screen protector. Makes me wonder how many people put screen protectors on their wristwatch faces and look what they get exposed to

Looking at getting an Elite.
Has anyone tried Gingerbreak to root it, or any other way to root?

I haven't found a method yet to root it. The phone allows you to boot into Recovery so you can load a file from the internal memory (not the SD).

I would love it if someone else could try it though

Currently have an Optimus V running BACKside ROM.

I know I read a lot of questions about upgrading the phone if you would be able to keep your $25.00 a month plan. I called VM and they said I could transfer my number to a new phone and still keep the $25.00 plan even after the May 27th date.
If you read VM website that is not what it says......

Anyway my billing cycle is in 3 days, so I decided to pick up an Elite today and play with it and see what I think. That way if I like it I will transfer my plan to the new phone before the 3 days.

Some quick observations;
- The phone is very quick running on 800mhz. Running a custom ROM on the V that can OC, not that much difference.
- The slightly larger screen is nice, but not sure it's enough to upgrade from the V.
- Like the LED on the phone for pictures.

- Boot screen and sound gotta go!
- It takes longer to connect to the wifi compared to the V.
- The camera sucks on the phone big time with the stock app. The pictures where terrible. I installed Camera FX and the pictures where extremely good then.
- Not being able to move apps / data to SD could be a problem for a few people, such as myself with wanting Audubon guides on the phone. For example Audubon birds download data is 529MB.


I do not think I see enough here to get rid of the trusty V and upgrade to the Elite. The phones going back tomorrow.

I know I read a lot of questions about upgrading the phone if you would be able to keep your $25.00 a month plan. I called VM and they said I could transfer my number to a new phone and still keep the $25.00 plan even after the May 27th date.
If you read VM website that is not what it says......

Most of the cons in your list seemed negligible or easily mitigated. Seemed your only issue was the Audubon guides. I don't know if the are embedded in the executables, or in fact files, i.e. jpgs, pdfs, etc??

You don't know if they can be put on the SIM or not? Have you tried?

What is different than the OV is the OV only has 179MB of internal memory and most of it was used on my OV, and was constantly uninstalling programs. You can get around part of that by having a lot of the programs write to memory, but you are only left with a small amount of RAM to actually run programs in.

The Elite by comparison has 2GB of internal memory in addition to the system memory. I have installed over 100 programs on my Elite and I still have 1.88GB of internal memory and I still have 296MB of system memory, more than the OV starts without before you install anything.

Sounds like you could install the Audubon program on the phone 3 times and still have more space left than the OV.

Since you can always go backwards, I don't think it is worth staying with the OV, but then we are all entitled to our choices.

I think the 1GHz Elite with NFC and bigger screen is more than enough reason to keep the Elite and put the OV on the chopping block.

Don't get me wrong I like the phone. As much as I like to upgrade electronics, I just can not justify the $130 for this phone when the little V's alive and kicking a$$.

Link2SD is a great program. Have a ton of apps on the V, never had to uninstall or reinstall with using it.

If my little V died tomorrow, I would get the Elite....

The problem is, that no matter what rabbits I pulled out of the hat, the OV became too loggy for me. Had a fast 32GB SD, IFO ROM, all kinds of tweaks, but there were still times it just refused to function as it was bogged down doing something. Trying to use Navigation became a nightmare.

I was just asking for too much from the phone, and my brief stint with the Triumph was a miserable failure due to the poor radio/GPS chip. When I thought there were no other options, I bought a Galaxy S II and was prepared to abandon my $25 plan and VM and get the $30 T-Mo plan. Already had the SIM and was ready to rock with it when I finally gave up on the OV.

I have been a diehard OV defender, and even bought a couple for friends, but after awhile, I just asked too much of it, beyond it's ability to run properly, or even at all.

Since the Triumph was not an option, this chance to get the Elite was my only hope to keep my $25 plan and have a satisfactory option. I can give up a couple things like hotspot to have a phone that at least can run the apps I want to run.

I was trying really hard to keep $130.00 in my pocket by taking the phone back finding things I did not like.... The more I played the more I liked....
So I failed.
I just activated the Elite keeping my $25.00 a month plan.

You will not regret it! Besides you could easily sell your Optimus V on craigslist for around $80. I just sold mine for $80 and bought it on sale for $80 at Target! As a "whole" I would give the phone a solid 9.5/10 the only three things that would make this phone perfect is a front facing camera, dual core processor, and larger screen. Even without those features I can say the phone is easily worth the $129. I can't complain tho since I kept my $25 plan! Also the 1Ghz processor was a surprise bonus.

Understand, but like what was just said, by the time you sell your OV, you are paying $5 a month for a year to pay back for the new phone...that is like your plan temporarily going to $30 for a year, not so bad to have the new Elite. For me it stretches the time before my $25 plan will no longer be sufficient.

They go for that or less NIB on ebay

Used in good shape OV with a clean ESN are going for $30-$40 all day long on ebay. [there are so many for sale, bid wars don't happen]

I got one for $27.25 shipped friday.

Well I wasn't kidding when I said I just sold mine on craigslist for $80. People today are just stupid I guess. Had no idea they were so cheap online tho! Mine was only a month old with everything that was originally packaged (exchanged my old triumph for The OV 2 months ago). If Target didn't have a lame return policy I would of just got my money back! It was still crazy to see people on craigslist in my area selling them for around $60 with only the wall charger and USB cable. That's why I priced mine at $80.

I just sold my old Samsung Restore on CL for $25. I would think the OV would be worth a lot more.

I just activated my OE as well. Couple of things- can you have a digital clock widget on the OE's main screen like the HTC WildfireS?(I had upgraded to a WFS just before the OE came out and like a lot of the HTC features & widgets, but not the crappy 250mb internal memory limit). Someone mentioned a 1GHz processor for the OE- everything I have read says it is 800MHz...

Try beautiful widgets. I've not used them for a very long time, but there should be something in there for your clock.

It is advertised at 800mhz but people are reporting that they are clocking in at 1024mhz or 1ghz. I just picked up my Elite, but have not yet opened it, I am waiting for a response from VMUSA about keeping my grandfathered plan if I have to replace my elite because of a defective unit. I'll probably keep it either way, but I just want to know for sure.

Thanks for the info on widgets! I had not heard about the processor running faster than advertised.
Everything I have read says if you break/lose/change smart phones after May 27th, it will cause your plan to swap to $35/mth. I activated my Optimus today so I could play with it and see if I like it better than the WFS and switch back if I don't like it(still keeping my $25 plan).

Doesn't matter what is written, what is yours? Run any of the popular tests to check such as Quadrant, Antutu, CPU Performance, et al.

I already wrote phonescoop about changing their site to split the Elite from the M+, and it seems even between the Sprint and VM version, although I never heard what they were on Sprint, if Sprint even released it.

OK just downloaded Quadrant. For my VM LG OE it said my CPU is 1024 MHz. Maybe they decided to put in 1000 MHz unit just before release rather than the 800MHz stated in the specs?

IMO I believe it was a last minute sourcing decision that was a win win for everyone. IMO it meant greater cost savings though this meant that the printed packaging listed incorrect specs.

So iit could very well be that the cost of purchasing cpus that clocked at 800mhz stable was more expensive than purchasing a higher end cpu that functioned at 1.0. If you know about SODIMM ram and so forth, a lower end memory chip costs more to purchase than a higher end.

I have been waiting for someone else to comment on the test that indiciated the RAM was actually 32GB but 16GB was disabled, that is if I remember the numbers right.

This would be taking your comment a step further. If a 32GB part was currently cheaper than a 16GB, they could buy it and disable it. Imagine if we could access 32GB of RAM

What are you talking about? Only high end PCs have that much RAM. The high end HTC One X only has 1 GB of RAM.
The Elite only has 512 MB of RAM with around ~200 MB going to the GPU, thats why only ~300 is available to the user, same as the Triumph.

My 32GB comment was a mistake. It does seem the Elite has more than 512K, especially when using the Disk Usage appliction. It shows 1GB of memory containing system data and applications.

I can't remember what the phone showed for RAM available before installing anything but it should have been more than 300 as I have that much left after installed over 100 programs.

thanks

On phone storage it shows 1.86gb on the internal memory and another about 860mb on available memory. The second one is where your downloaded apps go by default. I believe you can then move them to internal memory, giving you almost 3 gigs of memory.

I haven't tried to move anything yet, other than from the SD to the internal memory to install a program.

It is my understanding that ringtones, mp3, videos, etc. go to you physical SD, or can be told to, keeping the RAM for applications and not media.

There was even a person who assume he had to change to the $35 plan, so he first changed his plan, then swapped his phone. When he heard of others staying on their $25 plan with the Elite, he called in and had his changed from $35 back to $25.
I have been having loopback problems on my Elite on 3g. I finally got
escalated to higher tech support at corporate. They tried to reset my
phone and kept getting an error. Now they are telling me the error
message states that the Elite is not compatible with the $25 plan.

The only way to fix it is to switch to the new plan and they would give
me a $35 credit for one month for free service, however, my next bill
would be at the new rate of $35.

I've asked them to talk to a higher up since all the due diligence I put into
this issue before buying the phone. They said call back tomorrow for an
update.

I told them I bought the phone at Wallmart and they have a 14 day
return policy on prepaid phones so would VM refund the money since
I was still within 30 days. They told me NO since I did not buy it from
them.

I'm glad I saved my Optimus V. Looks like it's the only way to keep
my $25 plan. I'll know for sure tomorrow.

I had a feeling that VM might pull this. I even explained that their
Public Relations stated that the Elite would be grandfathered in if
switched before the 27th. And that it was stated on the facebook wall.
That didn't have any effect since the new policy is in effect in the
database at VM and so far, no one will override the issue.

Heads up!

------------------------------------------------------------------
Well I finally worked with Tier 3 support. They said the looping and slow
3g speed was because the Elite must be on the $35 plan. Just wasn't worth
the extra money for the monthly plan and, If I'm going to pay more, I want
more phone like the 4G or other phones coming out.

Anyway, glad I saved my OV. I had them hook me back into my current plan
with the OV and my 3g data speed went from under 1oo kb to over 520 Kb with
the OV. Sitting in the same spot.

I hope you guys can keep your GF plan. They were going to give me one month
free if I kept the Elite, but then the next month would be $35 going forward.

Returned the Elite to the store just under the wire for a refund.

Even when I showed VM 3 separate postings on the VM facebook wall that
stated they would honor the grandfathered plan, they just kept stating that
phones released after May 1st, MUST be on the new plan.

Sorry for the heads up, but maybe some of you can keep your GF plan if
that is important to you as it is for me.

Hello,

Not having dealt with a loopback, I don't know what you are dealing with, but if is a phone problem, couldn't it be swapped, and if it is a network problem, they are obligated to provide the service you paid for.

Seems like a network issue and a billing situation are getting intermingled for some reason which is inexplicable to me?

I would keep yelling until they get your Elite working!
